  • They use around 235w when the igniter is on initially and then about 35w or less during normal operation for the fans and auger. Ignore what the manual says about needing a 1000w inverter

  • The manual says that if you use the manual start up procedure, the thing will run off a 100w inverter. What confuses me is the bit about lighting the pellets with it off and using a firelighter and gas torch but then it says go to step 2 of the normal startup which is the step activating the heat rod. So in effect, that part will still draw a lot more than the 100w inverter can handle, even if it's just for a short time. :shrug:

  • Pull the controller out and unplug the heat rod, problem solved for camping. When you get home plug it back in. It should only be a 5 min job as you do need to be able to replace the heat rod. I might do this for camping as well.

  • I remember reading somewhere that if you light it manually and get up to a certain temp (130f) the heat rod won't activate. I was thinking of putting a switch on mine to activate / de-activate the heat rod. Not that I need to, but like to tinker.
